Dwayne Haskins Jr. Seemed definite when he was asked if he stared down WRs when he threw 3 interceptions in a loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Haskins has since watched film from the game and says he was looking at his receivers too long.which is something you can't do against zone coverage. He was trying to look defenders off but it didn't work.

Haskins has a 24 hour rule after a game. Monday is when he reflects on what went right and wrong; on Tuesday he lets it go and focuses on the next game. He is focusing on improving his game, and correcting issues for his next game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Haskins said he is young and always looking to get better. He knows he can't act like he's arrived until he's actually arrived and proved himself in the NFL. His teammates have expressed their support for him, and he wants to give them something to stand behind. Haskins tunes out all outside distractions, and said he hasn't even had cable TV since high school.

Logan Thomas is a former QB, and he knows how hard the position is, especially at the professional level. He told Dwayne Haskins to just go out there and perform. Haskins will come out of last week's rough outing in Cleveland as a better player. Thomas got a lot of attention from his friends and Sportscenter for his diving catch on Sunday.

Diving catch:

Dontrelle Inman caught two touchdowns vs the Browns before leaving with a wrist injury. He didn't practice, but said he's feeling good. He said what everyone already knows: Terry McLaurin is good at football. F1 leads a very young Washington wide receivers corps, and Inman is doing what he can to help them get better.

Rookie DE James Smith-Williams is in line for a bigger role in the defense after Matt Ioannidis was placed on IR with a torn biceps, and Chase Young is expected to miss this week's game. He is absorbing lessons from all of his teammates as he gets ready for his opportunity.
